Cultural attractions, chilled-out bars and easy access to restaurants and attractions

Not Great For

Pumping nightlife

If Siam is the heart of Bangkok, then the Riverside must be its main artery, pumping life into the city. On one hand, you have the constant movement of the city seen right in front of you, as ships, people and produce all come and go in a never-ending cycle.

The constantly buzzing Riverside is known for its luxury hotels which offer an opulent and peaceful place to explore the city, not to mention stunning city views!

Alongside five star hotels, the Riverside will also offer you a humbler slice of local culture and life. If you’re looking to hit up Bangkok’s clubs, a Riverside hotel might not be for you. However, if you’re looking to explore top attractions by day and relax in comfort and style by night, you will want to book a room in one of Riverside’s many hotels.
